I own this dictionary, which happens to be the best English dictionary. This early Merriam-Webster edition is more comprehensive than the Noah Webster edition (also labeled Second Edition - however, dating to 1979), although the latter obviously contains more modern words.
As other library members point out, this is not the full dictionary. All you get here are the plates -- which is actually quite useful. I hope the full dictionary gets scanned soon. It is by far the best dictionary in existence, perhaps with the exception of the OED, although it still has some advantages over its British rival.

Almost the entirety of the section "A Guide to Pronunciation" (pp.xxiii-liii) is missing, which was the reason I visited this in the first place. Deeply disappointed, as this was the only copy of the said section I could find online.

Random pages from the dictionary
Look elsewhere. This contains random pages from the dictionary.

Not worth the time to download.
this is around 300 random pages, out of 3000, of Webster's 2nd, not necessarily in order.
Of little or no value.
